Tlaloc – La Energía Luminosa
(Tlaloc – The Luminous Energy)

Oliverio Balcells 2005

The luminous energy is the essence of the whole “material” world. Matter, in its most intimate essence, is shaped by energy.

The Ancient Grandparents represented this energy symbolically with water, understanding that through the influence of water, the material world reproduce itself. The symbol is shaped by the presence of water as the announcement of life. The Nahuas called this religious energy Tlaloc, the Mayas Chac, the Zapotecs Cosijo, and the Totonacas Tajín.

Product Description

Toltecayotl Collection

This work preserves and expresses the most important historical and philosophical legacy, in essence and structure, of the civilization of the Anahuac.

With respect, honor, appreciation and love I dedicate this work as a recognition to the inheritance deposited in the DNA of every one of the Mexicans. Still it is dormant, waiting for us to summon it up in order to return to having our own face and a true heart.
—Oliverio Balcells.

A grouping of the creations of the Toltec culture

“The knowledge, practices and wisdom related to the universal search to transcend our existence in this material world, are known as Toltecayotl.”
—Guillermo Marin

“The Toltecayotl, essence of being Toltec, was sustained with the philosophy of the duality and came to represent for the posterity that which is most elevated inasmuch as the constant search of the loftiness in knowledge and in the human arts, to become a Toltec, to become what is Toltec, a concept that was born with those sedentary villages that by living at the edge of the rivers, lagoons and streams where the tula plants abound, they managed to evolve until they converted their name into a synonym of perfection, that which is described in the posterity designated to the artists that have Toltec hands, and to those wise men and philosophers that make their knowledge bloom like Toltecs”
—Arturo Meza
